Skidmore College Employee Handbook for Staff

Supporting Our Colleagues

As a community with an interest of creating and building a spirit of caring and concern, Skidmore contributes a cash gift to a charity of the employee’s choice when there has been a death in an employee's family.  For purposes of this procedure, family includes the following relationships: spouse, domestic partner, child, parent, brother, sister, mother-in-law, and father-in-law.

If you or one of your colleagues experience the loss of a family member, please notify Human Resources or ask your Supervisor to make the contact so arrangements can be made on a timely basis. Please click on this link to fill out information form.

When an employee has had a hospital stay or medical procedure and is out of work recuperating or if an employee has added to their family through the birth of a child or the adoption of a child, the College will send either a baby or get well basket to employee’s home.  Please notify Human Resources or ask your Supervisor to make the contact so arrangements can be made on a timely basis.

If you have questions or require additional information with respect to any Handbook content, please contact Human Resources (extension 5800).
